Lancashire based Security Solutions Northern has responded to the latest British Government guidelines to ‘place effective physical security of an asset by multi-layering different high security measures’ with terrorism levels still at ‘severe’.

With that in mind Security Solutions looked to build on the success of its industry known SSTS 4000 turnstile, offering a robust, tried and tested full height turnstile which will perform as a reliable, multi layering, high security, pedestrian control measure for use in high risk environments and applications.

“We focused on the threat levels that pedestrians presented to national infrastructure by developing a certified hostile pedestrian mitigation Turnstile (HPM) after identifying that there are a limited number of HPM products in the UK are highly underdeveloped with limited products available,” said Brian Wilkinson, Security Solutions, senior operations manager.

With advice from the Lost Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) Security Solutions set to work, designing and producing the SSHSTS 3000 full height turnstile. To gain the essential LPS certification the SSHSTS was subjected to a range of attacks by security professionals, lasting at least 5 minutes using a wide array of hand tools and battery powered tools.

Withstanding the attempts of forced entry, the SSHSTS 3000 achieved the LPCB product approval mark of excellence. The SSHSTS turnstile is the only HPM High Security Turnstile in the UK tested to LPS 1175: Issue 8 Security Rating 3.

“The advice and guidance we obtained from the LPCB was crucial to the successful design and development of the SSHSTS Turnstile,” said Wilkinson who is also SSHSTS project leader.

“LCPB certification is recognised worldwide, security products that achieve LPCB performance rating demonstrate a higher level of security, safety and quality. We are extremely pleased that the SSHSTS 3000 has achieved this accolade.”
